Railway signaling system is the vital control system in charge of the core for safely train operation, its functional safety must be checked through sufficient verification. Until now, to verify the interoperability of developed railway signaling system, the on-site testing approaches have been applied after testing in laboratory with simulator. This approaches are some limited range of interoperable verification, so more systematic verification interoperability is required. In this paper, the three phases of interoperability verification for railway signaling system was proposed, and methodology for each phases are represented. And also The interoperability validation methodology and supported testing tool for railway signaling system is represented in this paper
